Weigh in #32

I've worked SO HARD this week! I have managed to hit my step target every day since Monday, and on the days I haven't been at work I haven't just hit it.... I've smashed it!

To be fair my step target is only 7250 steps (3 miles) and not the 10,000 recommended but when I've not been at work I have got well over the 10,000 so I think that balances out. I'll work up to getting 10,000 on work days (it's a matter of finding time as much as anything).

I've also been doing some yoga on the Wii Fit - ooooh my! My tummy hurts! Hubby says it's my abs but I refuse to call them that when there is still so much flab over them!

I've been spending a lot of time chatting to other Weight Watchers on the "Connect" section of the WW App, and it seems that I have not got this Smart Points system right. I have not been using all my daily points. Apparently most people do. And a lot of them have most if not all of their weeklies. And lose weight more effectively than me. It looks like I have been trying too hard! I worked that out part way through the week (after a cheeky mid-week weigh in that showed no difference in my weight) and amended my eating habits. And sure enough...... I've lost!

As usual, I'm not drinking enough water! WILL I EVER LEARN!

So here are my stats for this week:

2016 start weight: 13 st 5lb
Last weeks weight: 13 st 2lb
Current weight: 13 st
Weeks loss: 2 lb 
Total 2016 Loss: 5 lb

So this weeks goals are:
Lose 1-2 lb
Increase my work-day steps from 7250 to 8000
Drink at least 2ltr water every day

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
